Title: Cape Town to Victoria Falls - all footage with smartphones only
Post by: WRL on May 08, 2012, 04:53:59 pm
A friend, Craig Neill and I embarked on a 14 day, 6085km journey from Cape Town, South Africa to Victoria Falls in Zambia.  Armed with 1 x iPhone and 1 x Samsung Galaxy S2, we recorded our journey in HD as it unfolded in one of the first ever smartphone motorcycle documentaries. No video cameras, no external microphones and no tripods. SmartPhones tested!

Follow our 9 minute adventure through the long, butt burning roads in Southern Africa, to meet the Bishop of Botswana, and family of the former Botswanan president, to the pans in Nata (Botswana), the elephants in Kasane (Botswana), the very dry Victoria falls in Zambia, along the Kaprivi strip (Namibia), down to Papa Falls (Namibia), back into Maun (Botswana) to see the Okavango Delta from the air and from a boat, before the final leg through to Gobabis (Namibia) and back home.

Hi JC, no I don't plan to upload the HD version, since it is 600Mb in size.

Nice. epic one Wynand and Craig. Was wondering if there will be an RR after you told me about it. :thumleft:

It would be hard to imagine you on another bike as the Dakkie. You have surely travelled. :biggrin:
